Everyone has a different path to parenthood, filled with medical, legal, and socio-emotional considerations. For transgender, nonbinary, and gender-nonconforming folks, preparing for parenthood includes all the typical planning — What path do we take? How much will it cost? What’s the best stroller, and where can we find a sale? — in addition to navigating questions around hormones, self-advocacy, and more. As you embark on this journey, explore Family Equality’s various resources on general paths to parenthood and the trans-specific resources on this page!
Trans Fertility Resources
To help put safe, accurate, inclusive fertility information directly into the hands of the trans community, Family Equality partnered with Fertility IQ. Drawn from dozens of medical and academic studies as well as personal experiences, the resources below cover a wide variety of topics related to trans fertility—including understanding how hormones impact fertility, when and how to preserve your fertility if you’re going to transition, and how to get emotional support throughout your family-building process.
There are also resources for helping trans and gender-nonconforming people advocate for themselves within medical spaces and build resiliency when dealing with hardships related to the family-building process.
